You Can Now Choose "Distancing Seats" When Booking a Flight

Philippine Airlines prepares for post-quarantine travel.

( Until someone discovers a vaccine, COVID-19 will continue lurking in the background even when the government lifts quarantine. This means maintaining physical distance is still our best bet to avoid getting infected by the virus. To make sure that travelers sit as far from fellow travelers as possible, flag carrier Philippine Airlines has introduced social distancing sections where the aisle or middle seats are left empty in a flight. These "distancing seats" are available starting July 1.

Passengers have the option of booking a "distancing seat" on the Premium Economy class or the Economy Flex section of the plane. Regular seats (a.k.a. non-"distancing seats"), however, are still available for some rows in the Economy cabin class.
